Thanks to my contacts at Hasbro/Nerf for the news and image shots. I’m being told that these new Foam Melee items will be available to be viewed at San Diego Comic Con this year! They are made by Perpetual Play Group, which has made solid Nerf items and accessories the in not so distant past for Nerf. The “Swift Justice”, pictured above, closely resembles a knife. While the “Vigilance” below looks similar to an axe.

No information on pricing or targeted release frame yet, but keep your eyes and ears open to my site for that info in the future!

Random Acts of Nerf: Attaching Nerf Darts to Your Eyes

Just yesterday, a Youtube user by the name of “Charles Tietjen” posted the video above to Youtube. He attaches Nerf suction darts to his eyes and looks around, which looks a bit odd to say the least.

WARNING: This is a bit unsettling, and it personally made me squirm while watching it. Just knowing that Nerf suction darts would be attached to your eyes gets me closing them.

In a different video linked below, he says in the description that he has contacts over his eyes. Even so, I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND doing this this, at all. Always wear eye protection when playing with Nerf blasters folks.

There’s a less another video he made showing the process of putting them on, which is also a bit easier to take. If you want to see more, someone also made a short gif as well. Check the rest of the post to see that.

Keri Russell & Her Family Are Into Nerf Wars

Keri Russell tells Jimmy about her son’s annual Christmas list and how vicious her toddler daughter gets during Nerf fights.

American actress was on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, and during their talks about Christmas wishlists she reveal that her young children (3 & 7) are into having Nerf wars with their parents. Of course, it’s not quite as crazy or hardcore as more of us Nerfers, but it could be a start! And of course, it’s nice to hear Nerf getting some attention in the mainstream media.

The Nerf N-Strike Elite XD Line Is Already Proving To Be A Dissapointment For One Fan

So if you remember my post about the N-Strike Elite XD line bringing new standards to Nerf’s Elite ranges, you would have probably been excited about it like most fans. It seems like 75 feet to 90 (angled, stock measurements of course) would be very noticeable.

However, fan Mod blog “Derp Mods” has done some range tests with an Elite XD Triad, and the results are disappointing, and also a bit confusing. Check the rest of the post for more info and a possible explanation.

Nerf Quietly Releases Mega XD Line, Magnus Blaster First Of Many?

1911991_1504980619750651_7960405390064321910_n
Photo thanks to Isiah of the Nerf Modders Welcome Facebook group

In a bit if a surprising twist yesterday, Gamerboy1659 of the popular Facebook group Nerf Modders Welcome posted what looks like normal Mega Magnus boxart. The photo shows just a Magnus boxart, minus the blaster. What’s interesting is that instead of the usual Magnus up to 85 feet advertised ranges, this one advertises up to 95 feet!

There isn’t any other information from Isiah on where he got it from, or how much it costs. But based on previous Nerf trends it should cost the same, or about the same, as a normal Magnus blaster. While a 10 foot range increase isn’t super dramatic, it’s another step closer to the 100 foot ranges of the Mega Centurion. More range for the same price, in the same package is also another positive thing most of the tine. I’ll keep you updated on where he got it from, it’s cost, and other new information I can get related to it.

I wonder if the upcoming Mega Bigshock will feature Mega XD ranges as well? Again based on previous behavior from Nerf, it would be very odd for them to make/brand a new line and NOT include more blasters into it. So I personally expect some upcoming Mega blasters to be put into this line.

UPDATE: Gamerboy1659 has put up a video review of the Magnus XD blaster. I haven’t had the chance to watch it, so I’m not sure what he goes over in it.

Blastersmiths UK & BlasterTECH Partner Up For Australian, Asian, & Pacific Distribution

In a recent press release from Blastersmiths UK, they’ve announced that they’ll be teaming up with BlasterTECH in Australia to help distribute the Blastersmiths UK products and items easier and quicker to Australian, Asian, and Pacific Nerfers! Blastersmiths UK is known for their popular items such as the MKIV Drop Leg Holster and their Custom Fabric Nerf Mag Holders.

Check the press release below for more in-depth info. You can expect to start ordering from BlasterTECH November 1st.

Bristol, United Kingdom & Brisbane, Australia

Blastersmiths UK and BlasterTECH today announced a working partnership that they hope
will be benecial to both companies. BlasterTECH is an emergent wiring loom and electrical
modication company based in Brisbane, Australia. They have recently started selling wiring
looms through their website, BlasterTECH.com.au with the aim of lowering the threshold to
entry for the average Nerf modder. Blastersmiths UK already sells an array of un-soldered kits
and 3D printed parts so a trading partnership seemed like the natural step forward for the two
companies.

The two companies first encountered one another through BritNerf.co.uk, the UK’s primary
Nerf forum. Mike, from Blastersmiths UK, and Dean, from BlasterTECH, got chatting around
electrical modication and the potential of selling modied blasters. Regrettably, the regulatory
environments in both the EU and Australia prevent the sale of fully modied blasters on their
own at the commercial level but kits and pre-soldered looms can be sold in the EU and Australia
respectively. BlasterTECH moved forwards with their wiring looms and accepted the oer of
distributor in order to resell 3D printed components and some tactical gear in order to fund
future development.

Australian customers can purchase BlasterTECH wiring looms direct from their website
(www.blastertech.com.au) with immediate effect and from the 1st November 2014 will be able
to access a wider array of Blastersmiths UK products without the risks of international shipping
or the wait that comes with lead times for custom made goods. All Blastersmiths UK products
listed on BlasterTECH.com.au will be available in stock for immediate dispatch in accordance
with BlasterTECH shipping policies.

Looking to the future, the two companies are looking to work closely on further developing kits
and looms for the full range of electronic foam dart blasters, including Nerf’s Elite Demolisher
2-in-1. There is a great deal of untapped potential in the many electronic blasters out there
and the two companies are looking forward to tapping that and bringing new products to the
foam dart blaster marketplace.

Buzz Bee Toys has recently released Youtube commercials for their newer blasters called the Predator, Sonic 6, Extreme Blastzooka, Sidewinder, and Gunsmoke.

Black-Tactical’s Limited Edition Metal Mags/Clips For Nerf Blasters

blacktacticalmetalmag

If your not familiar with Black-Tactical, it’s a tactical gear site based in Singapore. They sell a good variety of high quality tactical gear, including accessories, scopes, sights, stocks, and even Nerf equipment. Which includes blaster kits, springs, epoxy, and more.

One of their latest releases are Metal Mags/Clips for our Nerf blasters. They call it the Aureus Alpha, or “The Golden One”. Check out their details and some of my thoughts on them below.

Version 2.0: Its the same high quality build, now mass produced cheaper!

After intensive R&D, Black-Tactical.com presents the Aureus Alpha, “The Golden One”. A Limited Edition Custom Made Metal Magazine Machined to fit Standard NERF Sockets for Professional NERFers.

Problem:
Arseholes stepping on your plastic mags and breaking them
Standard 6 Round Mags too little ammo
Extended 18 Round Mags are too long and cannot fit any known pouches and cumbersome to handle

Solution:
Metal Machined Body for Crush Resistance
Fits 12 Standard NERF Streamline or Ferdelance Darts
Fits All Standard STANAG M4/M16 or AK47 7.62 Magazine Pouches.
Orange/Gold Safety Colour to conform to most country’s import laws.
100% Anodized inside and out to protect against wear resistance and alu oxidization.
Metal Breach modified guns will benefit from more precise engineering with little or NO movement play when loaded in the magazine well. Allowing more efficient and precise round Feeding & Chambering and thus more accuracy.

Alpha Trooper:
Problem with the stupid Alpha trooper catch is that it is bigger than every other catch, so we favored machining it so that it will fit ALL OTHER magazine wells PERFECTLY with little or no movement play. HOWEVER a nail file on this stupid fat alpha catch solves the problem within seconds.

Thank You:
As part of the NERF community, Black-Tactical.com thank you for your continued support to create more Professional Accessories! For those who understand manufacturing would know that it cost a lot to create this. We are already pricing it as low as we can afford to already, so please buy more!

Kmart Puts Up New N-Strike Elite Version of the Zombie Strike Sidestrike

spin_prod_1092481712

Another day, another recolor am I right?

Kmart’s site has put up a listing of an Elite Version Sidestrike. In case you needed a reminder, the Sidestrike first originated as a Zombie Strike blaster. This Kmart exclusive, 2 Pack version retails for $24.99 on the side, comes with 12 Elite Darts, and lacks the holster that normally comes with the Zombie Strike version of the blaster.

I like how one one blaster is the old Elite color scheme, and the other is the new Elite color scheme though. Probably worth passing on it, unless your a newer player who wants to pick up a simpler blaster for yourself and another.
